The pressure on Lionel Messi

Football Fanaticos at related • 0 views
There was a very interesting article in Semana on Lionel Messi (it is in Spanish). It is about how the pressure on a shy young kid, who only wanted to enjoy playing football, is destroying the talent of this player. And as with myself, the writer admits that all of us football fans are to blame for this pressure on this young boy.

Some great teams have been eliminated from the World Cup. Not Argentina. They are now among the world's eight best; a side where they hardly run (except DiMaria), and just wait for Messi to do something with the ball. Football is not just a wheel of fortune where you hope the ball lands on Messi! You cannot win a World Cup this way, and the Swiss were largely unlucky not to prove it.

In news that should shock precisely no-one, Diego Maradona is reportedly seriously considering coming out of retirement in order to register as a player for Argentinian fifth-tier sideDeportivo Riestra.

Maradona, who is now 53 and hardly what you'd call a "physical specimen", joined Deportivo Riestra as the club's official "spiritual coach" last August and has been asked to take over as manager on several occasions, though his alleged reply every time was simply: "I want to play".
